I have a configuration question, so I tought of comming on here and seing if you guys could help me out.
Currently we have 3 6500's, SW1 and SW2 (6513's) inter-connected via port-channel(vlan
trunk) and SW3 (6509) connected via standard trunk port on a lan extention over Gige.
Our vlan routing is currently done via a pair of Fortigate firewalls. They have a physical
interface connection for each vlan to SW1 and SW2. These fortigates are setup as the
gateways for each vlan (10.98.x.1).
We have the requirement to move the vlan routing down to the core 6500's on the MSFC.
each 65xx switch have a vlan interface setup for each vlan (19) as shown bellow which spands across all 3 switches:
VLAN 100 DMZ 192.168.2.0/21
VLAN 102 PROD 10.98.2.0/23
VLAN 104 CORP 10.98.4.0/23
VLAN 106 QA 10.98.6.0/23
VLAN 108 VOIP 10.98.8.0/23
VLAN 112 FCIP 10.98.12.0/23
VLAN 208 SIPGC
VLAN 210 PROD-SIP 10.98.10.0/23
VLAN 221 GT (No Vlan interface)
VLAN 242 BGP (No Vlan interface)
VLAN 264 SIP-VPBX (No Vlan interface)
VLAN 265 SIP-BW 126.96.36.199/29
VLAN 300 WANCOM1 (No Vlan interface)
VLAN 400 WANCOM2 (No Vlan interface)
Each vlan spands across all 3 switches via the Trunk ports since there are devices on
specific vlans that are connected to different 6500's for redundancy.
The Vlans are currently all setup for spanning tree priority:
SW1 spanning-tree priority 0
SW2 spanning-tree priority 4096
SW3 spanning-tree priority 8192
I need to know, if we pull the fortigate firewall from this setup, and start doing the
vlanrouting on the MSFC, how does this change the configuration? Please provide some examples.
Since we have 3 core switches, do we need to implement HSRP on the Vlan interfaces? If so,
how would that be configured? Again, configuration examples would be appreciated.
Also, which routing protocol should be implemented in this scenerio?
